I work with individuals and partners from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. My areas of expertise are challenges with relationships and sexuality, communication, intimacy, desire discrepancy, infidelity, sexual orientation, gender, and romantic and sexual life styles as well as self-discovery and sexuality through the life span. As a sex therapist I am trained to assist you with sensitivity and competence to address these issues. My goal is to support people in their self-realization and growth as relational and sexual beings and to collaborate with you to strengthen your emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.

I am a sex positive therapist with a background in working with trauma and body image issues.
If I were to pick one theme that runs through my therapy work, it would have to be Empowerment. I believe completely in people's abilities to change their own lives. In whatever age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, or culture we feel we belong to; we have the power to decide how to respond, perceive, define, believe, and present ourselves to others. I feel my role as a therapist is to ask questions, be curious and draw out the power of each person's own spiritual, emotional, and relational authority over their own lives.

I started going to therapy when I was teen and it was that experience that lead me to pursuing a career where I would be able to help those the way I was helped. This lead me to complete my undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in sociology as well as my Masters in Social Work at California State University of Monterey Bay. I have experience working with the unhoused who were struggling with addiction and severe mental illness, adolescents, adults and first responders. I have a strong foundation in working with depression, anxiety, trauma, personality disorders, substance use disorders and grief.

There are many reasons why you might be looking for a therapist: help with a long term struggle, support during a current life situation, and/or your personal growth. Whatever your reasons, I know how important it is to find a therapist you can develop a solid relationship with. In our work together we will come to understand more about what isn't working. You may be feeling stuck, sad, alone, consumed by rage, or unsatisfied. You and I will work together to build a trusting and non-judgmental relationship where you feel safe to talk about yourself openly.

Marriage and relationships are challenging and it is even harder to ask for what you want. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. As a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy, I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect. It is my passion to heal shame, have the hard talks, and facilitate communication. Personally, I know the challenges of maintaining the passion in a long term relationship and I don't believe it is normal to give up on intimacy.

I believe that each person has a unique purpose. Life presents with situations where depression, addiction, anxiety, eating too much, eating too little, low self-esteem, and no self-identity can distract a person from finding this unique purpose. I like to explore a variety of issues that keep you from experiencing your purpose in life and help you find your meaning and make sense of that meaning.

I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth as your guide, witness, and companion. I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional “talk” therapy. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding to having a transformative experience. I have an active style that is more than simply listening. I would describe the way I work as collaborative, curious, and challenging when it needs to be. I identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP) of gifted intelligence, both of which inform my work. My approach is mindfulness-based and somatic.

You are here looking for something, maybe you have been feeling like your worries have started to control your thoughts, you just can't shake the feeling of sadness, or maybe you are confused why you are even struggling? You have tried to feel better but it isn’t working. You do not need to suffer. Life is full of transitions and this can be harder than we expected. What if I told you that as a team, you and I can work together to get you back to a place where life feels manageable, more enjoyable and where you feel more like yourself again?
